I worked on this video as a production consultant, I helped at the start and was really amazed with the way the project gathered momentum.
Meet Me in Winter is a demonstration of what’s possible when people unite and speak openly – sharing their time, their dreams, their stories and their resources to achieve extraordinary things.
Hundreds of people from one small community came together to record a song and a short film. They wanted to raise money to help others, but also to send out a message of solidarity and optimism in the dark months of the year. The project was inspired by the story of one person’s experience of depression during wintertime and how her community made all the difference to her when she really needed it.*
Now, the song has taken on a life of its own. People of all ages are learning it and singing it right around the world. And the one small community where it all began is inviting others, wherever they are, to sing with them. We want to make all our voices heard this winter and we would love you, your family, friends and community to join us.
